Council seeks public input on future Harrow development plans

Harrow Council has started a project to shape the borough’s future development with a draft local plan. The goal is to keep Harrow’s suburban feel intact while carefully choosing where new buildings go and making sure they’re well-designed.

They’ve started an eight-week period where residents can share their thoughts on the plan. This is the first time the public can have a say. You can give your feedback until April 25th this year.
